The point is: I do *not* want to save the volume, because otherwise the default volume setting in prefs is completely useless. Users will be confused if they set the standard volume to - lets say - 50% and the next start the volume will be the last current value instead of 50%.

Likewise, I do *not* want this feature in general, because I use the volume control of vlc only to compensate much to loud or to low audio, and I don't want to reload the volume of the last movie every time. (But thats my opinion.) 
But as this is implemented currently, I thought they could be a general interest in this feature, and therefore I suggest to implement a user choice later on.

With best regards,
